Eh, the gun is bugged, they'll fix it next week, so for this weekend they say "Everyone have one!"

Apparently people are having tons of fun in 4vs4 with everyone rolling a Lens, so I think it's fine for them to do this.

Square Enix is excited to share some big news with you next year

"We are counting on this one to sell TWO HUNDRED MILLION COPIES, as we are completely incapable of setting realistic expectations."

Also, to address the annoying leeches who join matches and do nothing the entire time (but still get rewards at the end), Epic has introduced a feature called "you can't see your teammates on the map anymore". This will keep you from noticing who doesn't move for an entire match, lowering your personal frustration.

Hehe, that's actually pretty clever.

My bosses at work have the exact same mindset about problems. Don't fix the problem, but let's mask the symptoms so we can HIDE the problem. It's much easier.

Four player? World war Zzzz.

World War Z is a name synonymous with heart-pounding fear and action

Hahahahaha. Oh wait, you weren't joking. There was a part in that movie that showed fear? Oh, I guess the part at the airport in the night was somewhat tense. And maybe when the zombies suddenly became amazing acrobats and created a human ladder 200 feet high to scale the wall in... Jerusalem?

Other than that it was a god-awful snoozefest. I watched it on a trans-atlantic flight, and even then I still thought it was 2 hours of my life I'm never getting back.

News Comments > X-Series and The Division Free Weekends

I can heartily recommend X3: Terran Conflict or X3: Albion Prelude to anyone. Unfortunately, a two day free-play will let you get basically nowhere, really.

Ah, Terran Conflict. That feeling of awesomeness when I finally had my big ass Terran destroyer fully outfitted, and I just went and utterly annihilated entire Xenon sectors with it. It was glorious. I didn't play AP much, for some reason. Probably because I had put 1000+ hours into X2, X3 and X3:TC in the few years before and was a bit burned out.

But now I kinda miss the X series. I saw one of my Steam buddies play X Rebirth yesterday, and briefly entertained the thought of giving it another try, but then I realized I have like 15000 better games to play instead.

I still have a slight hope that X4 will return to be being awesome. Please be awesome.

I know someone who cashed out on Bitcoin and made over a million this week. A million before the tax man of course. And I know a couple that are probably headed for bankruptcy after fucking around with it. You had better know what the fuck you're doing before you screw around with this fake currency shit. Good luck using it for anything other than more speculation which says a lot about its long term potential.

Might as well just go to Vegas.

Right now it's basically the world's most volatile hedge fund.

I winder if the Crew 2 will actually stream properly instead of being a stuttering mess, despite the mediocre graphics.

I bought the first game for under $7, and it was crap. Thankfully, Forza Horizon 3 came out and armored all over that trash.

Ubisoft Kiev did the shitty PC port, I'm guessing? I played it on the Xbone (it was free, sue me), and it ran perfectly fine.

I wonder if they are taking more time on the next AC game as well, like they did with Origins.

I hope so. Origins was pretty awesome. I'm not gonna lie, I'm digging the look of Far Cry 5.

Targeted phishing is nowhere near that major fuckup of Sony 2011. Same goes for the other links you provided.

It's just the scale of things that made the Sony thing so much more worse in everyone's eyes. The level of the hack was in no way more complex or anything, so it's just MS' luck that they didn't have anything that huge sitting there waiting to be taken.

I'm not defending Sony, their security was non-existent, and they got off WAY too easy (though they're probably looking at Equifax and going "What? They get NOTHING in fines??"), but Microsoft has had absolutely similar breaches.

Sorry, but when has Intel or nVidia ever done anything like this?

I meant more in general just doing shitty business practices, though Nvidia did almost the same thing with the GTX970, albeit slightly less blatant.

For Intel, the most blatant thing I can think of off the top of my head that they've been doing recently is putting birdshit TIM in their absurdly expensive processors, all so they can save like 8 cents per die. In the meantime, your temps go up by 20 degrees and your processor probably shortens its lifetime by a few years.

It's a "standalone expansion", which I would take to mean they are reworking a lot of stuff for PvP in a way which is completely separate from the main game.
I'd also assume that would mean there is no shared character.

Ah, you're right, I missed the stand-alone part.

An open case is always going to make more noise than a closed one, unless that closed one has absolutely shit airflow.

You can get sound-dampening cases now, which work pretty darn well.

I definitely recommend the MSI cards. Their TwinFrozr solution is fantastic. I'm never buying another brand again.

This is an absolute bullshit move by AMD, and their little handwringing explanation that they will force their AIB partners to be more clear about shit doesn't take away the fact that they gimped their card and are still trying to sell it for the same price.

Anyone who bought the gimped card has a VERY easy bait and switch lawsuit win waiting for them.

Hey, AMD? It used to be that when you wanted to release more RX5xx options, you'd give that gimped card a different name, so as to make it clear that it was different. The fact that you didn't do that just shows you're trying to cheat people.

Thanks for turning into Intel/Nvidia.

I LOVE Dying Light, but this just makes me go "Errr, what?"

First off, anyone who is Legend lvl 250 will make mincemeat out of you if you're substantially lower than that, so everyone get ready to grind Stuffed Turtle for ~ 90 hours to get to 250.

And the entire skill set / weapon set is not really designed for PvP. Everyone at that level will have a 32K damage shotgun which one-hit-kills everything, and melee would just be frantically click until you hopefully last longer than your opponent who is also just frantically button mashing.

It seems an odd decision, but hey, let's all jump on the PUBG bandwagon! PUBG IS THE NEW MOBA!

this, I will never forgive Sony for this. Say what you will but Microsoft knows its security and they never had a major incident like this.

Ahem

Cough

Hurgh

etc etc etc.

All other things you said, sure. It's a nice box.

Yeah, because Microsoft is the 'ONLY' company the suffers from these breach issues. Rolleyes


Where do I say that? Flo said Microsoft had never suffered from these issues, which is laughable, so I linked just the first three I found in a 5 second google search.

But that sure is a nice little straw man you're rolling your eyes at there.

The 1080 has the same amount of ram as the 1070ti. it's the 1080ti that has the extra 3gb.

Oh, you're right, my bad. So other than a few compute units, the 1070ti is basically a 1080. I'm glad I didn't pay the ~ $90 markup for a 1080 MSI Gaming...

I thought I'd read the 1070tis were locked down, but maybe I was wrong. Glad to hear the MSI cooler is quiet. I have a 1080 from EVGA, and it's also quiet when gaming. Maybe not as quiet as the MSI, tho.

Yep, they overclock by about 10%

I've also seen reviews, can't find them so quickly, that some specific tis were pushed beyond 1080 clock rates.
